A 33-year-old Denham Springs woman was killed early Friday when a Livingston Parish sheriff’s deputy struck her car from behind while traveling along La. 16 near its intersection with La. 64, Louisiana State Police said.

According to LSP spokesman Christian Reed, the deputy was responding to a call for service in the southbound left lane in a “fully marked” 2016 Chevrolet Tahoe when the Tahoe hit a 2004 Saturn Ion stopped in the left lane.

The driver of the Saturn, identified as Christinia Estave, was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, Reed said. She was taken to a hospital and later died.

Reed said the deputy was also unrestrained and received minor injuries.

Toxicology samples were taken from both drivers and the crash remains under investigation.

The crash occurred about 1 a.m.
